For this review, I used my Denon DVD-2900 universal player, the Anthem AVM 30 preamp/processor, and the Aragon 2007 seven-channel amplifier. I set the M-1 to be used as a center channel speaker on top of my Sony TV, the two front M-1s on their respective stands about three feet to either side of the TV, the AS2 behind the TV and the remaining M-1s behind and to the sides of the listening position, which is about 11 feet from the TV. I ran the AS2 in line level mode, so that it bypassed the internal crossover, and utilized the crossover setting in the AVM 30.

If you don’t have a preamp/processor, you can run your speaker wires from a receiver to the speaker terminals on the AS2 and then to the M-1s to benefit from the on-board crossover of the AS2. I set the speaker size to large and the crossover at about 85Hz. I set the distances and level-matched the speakers at 80dB SPL. After getting the phase setting to my liking, it was time to rock.
